Previous reviews indicate the lack of the third and final episode of this three part series. I found, after looking around for a few minutes, the entire movie, complete and run together instead of in parts on YouTube.
You have to be careful which one you pick to watch, because there are two listed, but only one of them has parts one, two and three in sequence, and that is the one with the running time listed as 55:57, titled "Doctor In Industry 1946 General Motors ". It's very interesting, and in the third portion, shows General Motors Industrial Medicine facilities as filmed within their plants. Amazing that it was so complete and well staffed, and could treat just about anything any small, well equipped hospital could.
The one listed with 56:19 time is the one with part one, and part two twice. Just check the running time at the bottom corner of each listing, and you will find the one you're looking for.

Subject: The Doctor Will Mill You Now
Oops. I had somehow downloaded the first two parts without realizing that Part 3 was not availible for downloading. Oh well, might as well review the incomplete version...
A newfangled doctor realizes the potential for a presence in the mill, where so many accidents seem to happen. His Father, also a doctor, doesnt like the sound of this one bit, as it will cut down on patients coming to see him and other doctors. The young doctor makes up his mind though, and starts work at the mill. Soon, all the doctors ignore him, his father disowns him, but the young doctor perserveres, his faithful wife by his side. This is where the film ended. We are still wondering if the Father and son will reconcile (but that's pretty easy to figure out in a Jam Handy film) and other minor issues. Pretty entertaining and well acted.
